‘Singer’ is B’way bound

'Hairspay' duo reteams as Herlihy pens tuner

NEW YORK — New Line’s 1998 romantic comedy “The Wedding Singer” is headed to Broadway for the 2005-6 season.

Margo Lion will produce the musical version of the film.

Lion last collaborated with New Line on the Tony-winning musical adaptation of John Waters’ “Hairspray.”

Tim Herlihy, who wrote the “Wedding Singer” screenplay, will adapt screenplay to the stage with Chad Beguelin.

Beguelin will also provide tuner’s lyrics; the music will be composed by Matt Sklar.

Beguelin and Skar wrote the book for the once Broadway-bound “The Rhythm Club,” which was recently canceled from the Manhattan Theater Club’s Biltmore Theater slate.

The two are collaborating on a stage version of the John Travolta starrer “Get Shorty.”

“The Wedding Singer” stars Adam Sandler as a small-town entertainer and Drew Barrymore as a waitress and his love interest.
